These books are full of really charming drawings to copy. I’ve even started going through the books myself, and found a new hobby! I do think though that the higher levels should be clearer in the steps from one step to the next. Sometimes I had to look really hard to figure out what had changed between steps. Maybe even adding short descriptions for each step would help too.
Overall, I think these books are a really great addition to our library and that older kids/teens especially would enjoy them.
